All medications given to you while you are an inpatient at UCLH are provided free of charge.

At follow-up appointments, you may be given a prescription by your doctor or nurse. This must be collected from the hospital pharmacy. You cannot take it to your local chemist. There is a standard prescription charge per item which you can pay for by cash or card.  

Many people are exempt from prescription charges or are entitled to help with them. To find out more about exemptions and help with health costs, contact:
